I'm fairly certain I would hurt myself severly if I had an actual lightsaber. yeah, I'd still buy one. Hmmm cost? I can't even wrap my mind around what it would cost. Tho, if Ron Poeil made it, it'd be very affordable I'm sure. ;D
Figuring for the micro fusion generator so I never need batteries and the hard-light projector so its not just a short beam plasma cutter about... $17.8 mil for the standard plastic on off or $18.2 for the flashy metallic button.
Atleast a few million would be the cheapest it could be bought for. I honestly don't know how much of a market there would be for it in the long run besides high end collectors :-P. Unless the Army decided to use it among its elite units until the price started going down :-P.
The idea of handling a real, functioning lightsaber scares the crap out of me. Considering you could roast off your whole hand at the lightest tough, I don't think I'd last long with one. I'd probably forget what I was holding and attempt to half-sword... ;D
Is that the lightsabre from the first couple of movies - the one that wouldn't cut thru a metal handrail ? (Remember that duel on the catwalk between Vader and Luke where the lightsabres hit the handrail and give off a few sparks?)
Or is it the Jedi wonder weapon that melts meter thick blast doors yet the heat given off by said melting blast door doesn't scorch the person holding the lightsabre?
If given the choice between buying a lightsabre or one of those flying cars which would you buy?
Guess you only fly domestic (kinda hard to drive to visit my wife's family on the other side of the pacific). I would take the flying car (air speeder) over the lightsaber. Who needs to cut things up when you can go that fast.
Nice observations of clear contradictions alant. I know the length of the light is adjustable. I suppose the intensity of the laser could also be adjustable. Metal cutting and non-metal cutting.
Here is an interesting question. How would you guys use a lightsaber? As a Longsword, a katana, a rapier, a small-sword, a spear, one-sided glaive, two-sided glaive, one-handed, two-handed? Perhaps double-lightsabers? Maybe I should start a poll?
I also got the impression form the last movie that a shield to defend against lightsabers is also possible (within the context of the the story of course). I'll take an anti-laser kite-shield and a one-handed lightsaber.
RufusScorpius: I don't like the traditional large German beer steins: the beer gets warm and flat by the time you get halfway through it. Probably OK for the English because they like warm beer (UK refrigerators are made by Lucas Electric)
